What About the Weather?

Florida in Summer you will almost certainly see a chance of rain EVERY SINGLE DAY, normally somewhere between 30 and 50%. Do not let this freak you out!! What a 50% chance of rain means is that it is going to rain somewhere in the 7 county area and this will more than likely be INLAND in the late afternoon. The coastal areas receive a lot less rain than inland as the sea breeze tends to keep the storms inland, away from the coast line.

Anclote Key

Pontoon Boat Rentals
If you're renting a pontoon boat, our most popular destination is North Anclote Sandbar - this tiny island is surrounded by shallow water with a white sandy bottom. Great for swimming, snorkeling, tanning and shelling. The island is about a 45-60 minute pontoon boat ride from our marina.
Heading South is Anclote Island, just five minutes from the sandbar and boasts a 5 mile long beach with white sugary sand, pine and palm trees. The Southern end of the island has a lighthouse.
A few miles South of Anclote is Three Rooker, a horseshoe shaped island with great beaches.
